64E Apache Helicopter is CONFIDENTIAL, and the highest classification 
of data and information is SECRET.
    a. The AN/ASQ-170 Modernized Target Acquisition and Designation 
Sight/ AN/AAQ-11 Pilot Night Vision Sensor (MTADS/PNVS) provides day, 
night, and limited adverse weather target information, as well as night 
navigation capabilities. The PNVS provides thermal imaging that permits 
nap-of-the-earth flight to, from, and within the battle area, while 
TADS provides the co-pilot gunner with search, detection, recognition, 
and designation by means of Direct View Optics (DVO), EI2 television, 
and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) sighting systems that may be used 
singularly or in combinations. Hardware is UNCLASSIFIED. Technical 
manuals for authorized maintenance levels are UNCLASSIFIED.
    b. The AN/APG-78 Fire Control Radar (FCR) is an active, low-
probability of intercept, millimeter-wave radar, combined with a 
passive AN/APR-48B Modernized Radar Frequency Interferometer (M-RFI) 
mounted on top of the helicopter mast. The FCR Ground Targeting Mode 
detects, locates, classifies and prioritizes stationary or moving 
armored vehicles, tanks and mobile air defense systems as well as 
hovering helicopters, and fixed wing aircraft in normal flight. If 
desired, the radar data can be used to refer targets to the regular 
electro-optical Modernized Target Acquisition and Designation Sight 
(MTADS). The content of these items is classified SECRET. User Data 
Module (UDM) on the RFI processor, contains the Radio Frequency threat 
library. The UDM, which is a hardware assemblage, is classified

consists of a functional guidance section coupled to an inert missile 
bus. The M36E9 CATM does not have a functional rocket motor or warhead, 
and cannot be launched. The missile has an operational semiactive laser 
seeker that can search for and lock-on to laser-designated targets. It 
functions like a tactical missile (without launch capability) during 
captive carry on the aircraft, making it suitable for training the 
aircrew in simulated Hellfire missile target acquisition and lock. The 
missile comes in a reusable aluminum container designed to protect the 
missile from shock, vibration, and other environmental conditions 
encountered during shipment, handling, and storage. The highest level 
for release of the CATM is SECRET, based upon the software. The highest 
level of classified information that could be disclosed by a proposed 
sale or by testing of the end item is SECRET; the highest level that 
must be disclosed for production, maintenance, or training is 
CONFIDENTIAL. Reverse engineering could reveal confidential 
information. Vulnerability data, countermeasures, vulnerability/ 
susceptibility analyses, and threat definitions are classified SECRET 
or CONFIDENTIAL.
    f. The Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation 
System plus Multi Mode Receiver (EGl+MMR). The aircraft has two EGIs 
which use internal accelerometers, rate gyro measurements, and external 
sensor measurements to estimate the aircraft state, provides aircraft 
flight and position data to aircraft systems. The EGI is a velocity-
aided, strap down, ring laser gyro based inertial unit. The EGI unit 
houses a GPS receiver. The receiver is capable of operating in either 
non-encrypted or encrypted. When keyed, the GPS receiver will 
automatically use anti-spoof/jam capabilities when they are in use. The 
EGI will retain the key through power on/off/on cycles. Because of 
safeguards built into the EGI, it is not considered classified when 
keyed. Integrated within the EGI is an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) 
for processing functions. Each EGI also houses a Multi-Mode Receiver 
(MMR). The MMR is incorporated to provide for reception of ground based 
NAVAID signals for instrument aided flight. Provides IMC I IFR 
integration and certification of improved Embedded Global Positioning 
System and Inertial (EGI) unit, with attached MMR, with specific 
cockpit instrumentation allows Apaches to operate within the worldwide
